DREAMWORKS ANIMATION SKG, INC. SPLASHDreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. (Nasdaq: DWA) has teamed up with Verizon on the $1,000,000 Shell-Out Contest in the Turbo Racing League App. The game, which is inspired by DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming summer film Turbo (out July 17) about a snail who gains super-speed, will feature a contest to shell-out one million dollars in total cash prizes.

The Turbo Racing League App from DreamWorks Animation and PikPok is available on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android handsets and tablets, and Windows Phone 8.

The game is available on all mobile carriers, however, fans who play the game on a Verizon device will have access to exclusive content from the film as well as unique game customization options and insider tips and tricks on game play.

“Turbo Racing League perfectly captures the high-octane excitement of the film, and players of all skill levels will love the detail and depth that went into creating this addictive racing game,” said DreamWorks Animation Head of Global Interactive Chris Hewish. “The basic game play is easy enough for everyone to enjoy, but the added complexities of the advanced maneuvers and the $1,000,000 Shell-Out will have racers vying for a lot more than bragging rights!”

To compete for real cash prizes in the $1,000,000 Shell-Out Presented By Verizon, eligible players must achieve Daily Goals or obtain sufficient tomatoes throughout the game to unlock access into the weekly Contest.  Once in the race, players can show off their driving skills on specific Contest race tracks during an eight week qualifying period of weekly Preliminary Races starting on May 16, 2013 and continuing until July 7, 2013.  Each week, the ten fastest racers will win cash prizes up to $25,000.

Each of the eight weekly first place finishers will earn an invitation to the Grand Finale Race Event in Los Angeles to compete against each other for the chance to earn the title of Turbo Racing League Champion and the Grand Prize of $250,000!  The final race will be held in Los Angeles on July 17, 2013, in conjunction with the theatrical premiere of Turbo.
